BICSc | Corporate Member Smart Logo

Digital Badge Installation Guide

Contents

Introduction

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) has partnered with Yoshki Ltd to develop a secure digital badge using the Yoshki Digital Smart Logo service.

The BICSc digital badge will allow members of the public to easily identify that a website they are visiting belongs to a genuine BICSc Corporate Member. It will also provide visitors with easy access to information on the company’s membership details.

Thanks to the software through which the badge is provided, only BICSc authorised websites can use the digital badge.

It ensures that the badge will only display on websites which are registered as belonging to accredited members.
